When I was first accepted into San José State as a finance major, graphic design was the last thing on my mind. I became unsatisfied with my career path and felt like I had settled. After a brief break from school, I decided to return and pursue a field I hoped would fulfill my need for creativity and give me purpose. Today, as I stand on the edge of the rest of my career, I’ve never been more proud of myself and the risks I’ve taken. Today, I can call myself a designer, and even more importantly, I believe it.
